CryotherapyRetinal cryopexy, also called retinal cryotherapy, is a procedure that uses intense cold to induce a chorioretinal scar and to destroy retinal or choroidal tissue. This procedure is used to treat many conditions, including...
Multiple SclerosisOptic Neuritis - A condition where the body’s immune system attacks its own optic nerve. There is usually rapid deterioration of vision followed by a more prolonged course of visual recovery. This condition is often associated with multiple sclerosis.
UltrasoundDuring surgery, the doctor will remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an intraocular lens implant. Modern cataract surgery uses a technique known as Phacoemulsification. A small incision is made on the side of or next to the cornea. The doctor then inserts a tiny probe into the eye which emits ultrasound waves that soften and break up the lens, making it easily removable by suction. This is the procedure used most often in cataract surgery today. A common misconception is that cataract surgery is done with a laser. This is not correct.
Eye ExamBabies that do not show eye health issues or are at low risk for eye problems should have their eyes screened by six months of age. University Eye Specialists, P.C. then recommends another eye exam at age three and one more before the start of school.
Cataract SurgeryAlthough cataracts do not return once removed, in some cases this residual capsule can gradually become hazy and begin to cause a decline in vision. This can occur months to years after the cataract surgery. A quick and painless in-office laser procedure can be performed to open this hazy capsule and restore sharp, clear vision.
GlaucomaGlaucoma refers to a group of diseases, usually caused by increased pressure in the eye, that can damage the eye’s optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. Early detection is important to protecting the eyes from serious vision loss in all types of glaucoma.
OphthalmologyOur doctors are highly recommended by other medical professionals such as general practitioners, pediatricians and other ophthalmology and optometry groups.
Macular DegenerationThere are known conditions that we previously knew had genetic patterns such as retinitis pigmentosa, Stargardt’s disease and cone dystrophy. Now we are finding other diseases with genetic predispositions such as retinal schisis or detachment, diabetes, macular degeneration and more.

CataractsThe lens of the eye focuses light and adjusts the eye’s focus. Proteins in the lens are arranged to keep it clear so that light can pass through it, but these proteins can clump together, causing cloudiness or a cataract.

LesionsHerpes zoster can cause painful blisters or lesions on the cornea and can cause uveitis, inflammation inside the eye. Corneal lesions can usually heal by themselves, but antiviral treatment and/or topical steroid eye drops may be prescribed to reduce the inflammation.
ThyroidBlepharospasm is a spasm of the muscles around the eye, causing involuntary blinking and closing of the eye. In severe cases, patients may not be able to open their eyes. Spasms often worsen with fatigue, bright light and anxiety. Blepharospasm can also be caused by other eye diseases. However, its cause is often unknown. Women and those with thyroid disease are more susceptible to blepharospasm. Treatments may include injecting botulinum toxin into the muscles, anti-anxiety medication or surgery.
Diabetic RetinopathyDiabetic Retinopathy: Diabetic retinopathy is caused by damage in the blood vessels of the retina. Blood vessels may swell and leak fluid, or abnormal new blood vessels may grow on the surface of the retina. Often there are no symptoms of the early stages of diabetic retinopathy. Blurred vision may occur when the macula, the part of the retina that provides sharp central vision, swells from leaking fluid. In addition, if new blood vessels grow on the surface of the retina, they can bleed into the eye and block vision. Without treatment, diabetic retinopathy can have detrimental effects on vision, and early detection by an ophthalmologist is important for successful treatment. This is why if you are diabetic, it is important to schedule regular appointments with your University Eye Specialists, P.C. ophthalmologist.
